JP Walker’s jacket of choice, the ThirtyTwo TM Jacket is a quality jacket with 10k waterproofing to keep you dry and warm during winter months. The Teton’s can bring a huge variety of conditions, but one thing that’s a staple
The TM jacket outer is a 2-layer flat finish brushed plain weave material with ThrityTwo’s Repel 10k water repellent, fully taped seams and YKK AquaGuard water repellent zippers. I did find the jacket absorbed a bit of moisture in storms where the water content was high. My body never was wet but the outer fabric was damp and sometimes heavy. I added a bit of Nikwax TX Direct Spray-On and this helped significantly.
The TM Jacket uses ThirtyTwo’s 3D Fleece zonal warming panels and Lining System for insulation/warming. It’s designed as a shell but I found I usually only needed a base layer and a t-shirt on most days. During bitterly frigid days I added a light hoodie and was comfortable. On warm spring days or when you are out of the elements the jacket does have mesh lined zippered vents in the armpits.
The jacket also features ThirtyTwo’s Snap Lock System (jacket to pant) to lock out snow and keep you dry. It also has a waist gaiter to keep elements out if your pants are not compatible.
The TM Jacket has ample storage, boasting 2 brushed tricot lined hand warmer pockets, a chest media pocket, and a sleeve pass pocket. The jacket features a phone leash, allowing you to use your phone safely and without the worry of dropping it.
It also has 32’s Quick Cinch Helmet Compatible Hood System which creates a seamless hood fit with or without a helmet.
The TM Jacket is a standard fit and fits true to size. The graphics/branding on the TM jacket are subtle. ThirtyTwo is splashed down the left sleeve, 32 is on the back lower right and the word mark is on the zippers, etc.
The ThirtyTwo TM jacket will keep you completely comfortable out on the slopes. With numerous color options, there’s sure to be one to complete your kit.
- Good 10K Waterproofing/Breathability
- Great for layering and using in most conditions
- Zippers can be fussy
